Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

27 July 2018

Band: THE CORAL

Album: MAGIC AND MEDICINE – their 2nd LP

Released: 28 July 2003 – 15 years ago

ALL MUSIC review: “Mixing equal bits Merseybeat melody, ragged “Nuggets” energy, and pure rock nostalgia, the Coral create one of the 21st century’s finest odes to 1960s and 1970s garage rock. Not since the La’s has a band more convincingly aped an era, and like that album, there’s not a cringe-worthy moment in sight. Everything’s in its right place, one might say. If the lads were accused of being too bombastic and experimental on their debut, here they reign in their influences and just stick with the program of creating rocking tunes.”
Score 3.5/5 – Full review here
